ASCL believe that a successful education system is fundamental to the performance, growth and productivity of any country. Expenditure on the education system should not be regarded as a cost but as an investment to secure the delivery of a world class education system.
ASCL accepts that the TPS needs further income to remain viable and that some increase in contributions will be necessary. The way in which this is funded, however, needs to take account of the current crisis in school budgets.
